Electrical workers charged up for Annissa Essaibi-George



Electrical workers charged up for Annissa Essaibi-George

Annissa Essaibi-George has connected with another union in her bid for mayor.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 103 endorsed her Monday at the union’s office on Freeport Street in Dorchester. IBEW Local 103’s membership includes 10,000 highly skilled electricians and technicians in the Boston area.

“IBEW Local 103 is incredibly proud to stand with Annissa Essaibi-George in her candidacy for Mayor of Boston,” said Lou Antonellis, Business Manager for IBEW Local 103. “As a former union member herself, Annissa knows our values firsthand. She will advocate and fight for us every single day as our Mayor, and will always govern with Boston’s hard working residents and families in mind.”

Essaibi-George said she will “work hand in hand with our unions to fight for fair wages, increase benefits, and maintain safe working conditions for all. Labor will always have a seat at the policymaking table in order for us to do this work, together.”

Michelle Wu, the other finalist for mayor of Boston, has also lined up a few key endorsements — Suffolk Sheriff Steven Tompkins, to name a big one — as the Nov. 2 final looms.

Jamaica Plain State Sen. and gubernatorial hopeful Sonia Chang-Díaz also endorsed Wu during a rally in the South End on Saturday.
